Cannelloni are rectangular pasta sheets that are rolled into a cylindrical shape encompassing a filling. After a pasta sheet has been boiled, it is typically filled with a savory stuffing which may include ricotta cheese, spinach, and various meats. It is then covered with a sauce, typically a classic tomato or béchamel sauce. Cannelloni is often erroneously referred to as manicotti, the latter being a pre-shaped tube that is then stuffed. Although both terms are plural nouns in Italian, the English term is often construed as singular, particularly when used as the name of the dish. ‘Manicotti’, pronunciation-wise, is said exactly the way it looks. Or man-ih-kohh-tee, if one prefers.
